Gamete activity in mating strains of Chlamydomonas eugametos

James S. Richards, Milton R. Sommerfeld

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The gamete activity of compatible mating strains of the isogamous, heterothallic species Chlamydomonas eugametos was investigated. Gamete activity was optimum within 4 h after flooding of agar slants and was maintained over a 24-h period. When male and female mating strains were mixed in proportions of 1:4, 2:3, 1:1, 3:2, and 4:1, the results based on zygote yield, indicated the strains exhibited different degrees of gamete activity. The male strain consistently showed less gamete activity than the female strain in a variety of culture conditions.
